King Leonidas of sparta controlled a military of 7,00 men into the battle of thermopylae. The spartans were trying to help by cutting off their armies supplies and them from reaching Athens.
Battle Of Plataea
The Persians defeated the Spartans because there was a traitor who lead them to the place where they were hiding out at. King Leonidas dismissed his troops and kept 300 men to stay and fight until the battle was over. Unfortunately the Greeks lost and the Persians won.
Themistocles of Athens made a plan to attack the Persian ships. The Athenians tricked the Persians into following them into the strait of salamis, because the Persian ships were too big to move around in the strait. Soon the Greeks attacked the Persians, because they were able to move smoothly around in the strait since they had small boats they won the battle, they also sunk 300 Persian ships and only lost a small amount(well compared to the amount the Persians lost).
Come Over Here!!!
All the Greek city-states came together and formed the largest army with over 100,000 soldiers on each side, the Greeks defeated the Persians, now the Persians no longer have any control over the Greeks.
